I believe the momentum principle is very important. Most texts, however, save this concept for much later in the material. Therefore, I will propose the following ordering of topics:

Chapter 1 - Introduction

Chapter 2 - Force

Chapter 3 - Acceleration and Newton's Second Law of Motion
3.1 Position and Displacement
3.2 Velocity
3.3 Newton's Second Law of Motion

Chapter 7 - Linear Momentum
7.2 Momentum
7.3 The Impulse-Momentum Theorem

Chapter 3
Sections 3.4 - 3.5

Chapters 4 - 5

Chapter 7
Sections 7.1, 7.4, 7.5, 7.6, 7.7, 7.8

Chapter 8

Chapter 10
